Progress report of the 600 m borehole project of the CEC programme on radioactive waste management and disposal. January-July 1990

Technical Report:

Abstract

In the framework of the CEC Programme on Radioactive Waste Disposal (1985-1900), in situ experiments in salt deposits are conducted. The experimental results will be used to validate analytical techniques and computer models for the prediction of salt behaviour. The experiments planned in boreholes of 600 m depth take place in the Asse II salt mine in Germany. The progress of the work during the first half of 1990 is reported. For the drilling of the boreholes a new technique has been developed. The drillings resulted in two boreholes of approximately 300 m. In one of these boreholes drilling will not continue and convergence measurements have started. The convergence measurement devices are installed in one of the holes and are successfully in operation since February 1990. Convergence data will be reported in a date report. A 2nd experiment is prepared for which the variable pressure device has been constructed. This device will be placed at the end of 1990 in the Asse salt mine after the necessary tests have been performed. A measuring program of 2 Years will be carried out during the second phase of the 600 m borehole project 1991-1992. The convergence measurement devices will be temporarily stored  More>>
